The free vibration and dynamic stability problems of asymmetric bimodulus thick annular plates are studied. The annular element with Lagrangian polynomials and trigonometric functions as shape function is developed. The element is based on the Mindlin plate theory so that the effect of transverse shear deformation is included. The dynamic stability of an annular plate subjected to a combination of a pure dynamic bending and a uniform dynamic extensional stress in the plane of the plate is investigated. The non-axisymmetric modes are shown to have significant effects in the annular bimodulus plates.
